Today is the first of our private tours, which I researched extensively. The ship’s tours were all shorter and focussed on one specific area, but we wanted more of an overall tour around the entire island.
We booked a 6-hour tour of the island with “Toni’s Tour” and he definitely didn’t disappoint. OMG, in 8.5 hrs we almost saw the entire island. Yes, we started at 08:00 and he returned us to the ship at 16:30.

Afternoon Tea with Fruit Scone, jam and cream
Today the weather abated significantly, but we are still at the edge of a Cat 3 Tropical Revolving Storm (Cyclone), so the ship is still rolling & pitching somewhat. We arrived in Nuku’alofa Tonga just after Noon, for an overnight stay.
With only a couple of days to organise, the ship did an excellent job arranging a fleet of shuttle buses to a local resort and an onboard performance from a local troupe.
Read on for photos of the performance, walk around Nuku’alofa and afternoon tea.
